Instructional Sessions

Silver Willow can help you achieve your shotgunning goals! Whether you like sporting clays, skeet, competitive or recreational shooting, or you just want to be ready for a corporate shoot or an upcoming hunting trip, we can help.  Silver Willow has the largest number of Level I Instructors of any sporting clays club anywhere in the world.  Our Instructors collectively have thousands of hours of shooting and teaching experience.

Learn new techniques and refine your shooting style with one of our experienced, NSCA Certified Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 instructors. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced shooter, there is an instructor that can help you reach your objectives.

Choose a single session or save 10% when you purchase a bundle of four sessions. You also have the option to shoot solo or bring a friend. Click for more details on each package and your options.

Please book your instruction at least 3 days in advance.

Learn-to-Shoot Events

At Silver Willow, we also host annual learn-to-shoot events for beginners. These fun group events feature NSCA-certified Silver Willow instructors who will show you the basics of sporting clays. They are held annually with limited spots available. If you missed this year’s events, check back early next year or sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop!


All the staff where friendly and helpful. Luther and Brad readily shared their knowledge with me. The training on how to handle and shoot helped me greatly.

Roy. He is a fantastic instructor, especially with younger kids. He was coaching my 12-year-old grandson who had not shot before. After 90 minutes or so the boy was shooting like a pro!

I brought my girlfriend who had never shot before and our instructor Bob was very knowledgeable. He was patient and had her hitting clays half way through the lesson. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Ray provided us with great instruction and good insight as to what we need to work on to improve our shooting skills individually. He has also taken time to reply to emails and continue to provide shooting advice away from the range. I will book another lesson with him again soon
